Seekers Notes is a game where the player becomes the Seeker and must find hidden objects that the townspeople lost. The town of Darkwood is under a curse, and things go missing. Most quests in the game are “one-offs” that end when a player completes a collection.
The Mysterious Friend Collection is part of a series of quests that are part of the Performer’s Path event. This one takes place after the player finishes the Creative Environment Collection.

Amy: Seeker, have you seen my grandpa? I waited for my friend for almost an hour, but he didn’t come to the rehearsal. I’m afraid he won’t come to the concert either. I’m so upset – I want to go home with Grandpa.
Seeker: I’m so sorry, Amy!
Congratulations! You completed a stage challenge and get Glove as a reward!
I completed the quest line for the first bubble in this part of the Performer’s Path event.
Blacksmith: What’s going on?! My little star is so disappointed. Did Pete run himself ragged and forget about everything? Let’s treat Amy to her favorite cornflower sorbet and find out more about the situation.
Pete is one of the other children in Darkwood. He is the son of Darkwood’s toymaker.
I found the cornflower sorbet!
Blacksmith: That’s news to me! My Amy cheered up after eating a couple of spoonfuls and sorbet and said Pete wasn’t even her partner! Do you know a boy named Rudy? My granddaughter says she met him recently.
Amy: No way! Pete never would’ve agreed to participate in a sentimental play. I thought all boys were like that, but Rudy turned out to be a big fan of the classics. Take a look at our playbill!
One unique thing in Seekers Notes is that the more you play through (and successfully find all the hidden objects in) a specific location – the more you level it up. The Music Hall was now at the Connoisseur rank. This matters mostly for locations that are part of a limited-time event, as part of completing the event requires players to level up the location all the way.
Congratulations! You completed the stage challenge and get Bohemian Snack as a reward!
I have now filled in two of the bubbles in this section of the Performer’s Path event.
I found the playbill!
Amy: Rudy was planning to perform alone, but when he met me, he revised the show to include us both. If it weren’t for him, I never could have mustered the courage to go on stage! But now it seems like I won’t be getting on stage either way.
Blacksmith: Amy is sad again and can’t utter a single word. Well, my mother used to say some fresh clean water can wash all your troubles away! I’ll go help Amy wash her face, but I need to find a towel first…
I found the towel!
Blacksmith: Oh, you found such a beautiful and soft towel! Amy will enjoy drying her pale cheeks with it after she washes up. And the color is so bright! She’ll perk up right away when she sees it!
Amy: Grandpa has asked me to tell him more about Rudy to help me find him, but I can’t get my thoughts together. I wanted to show you Rudy’s gift – a fun little frog that reads poems – but it seems to have vanished too.
I found the frog toy!
Amy: Oh, you found my toy! Thank you! This little frog reminded me that Rudy always stayed in character, acting out his role from the play. I’ve never seen him without a cape and mask before, and he also had an interesting accent!
Blacksmith: It’s too bad Amy hasn’t seen her friend without a mask, but if Rudy had an accent, we should start our search with the families that are new to the area. There aren’t many of them in Darkwood. Let’s look for their addresses in the directory!
Congratulations! You completed the stage challenge and get a Captain’s Wheel as a reward!
The Performer’s Path section with the creatures that the Seeker must placate has been updated. There are now three out of five bubbles filled in.
Blacksmith: Great! All of these families have children Amy’s age. What if the boy got a bad grade, and his parents are making him study right now? Together we can convince them to let him go out for a night.
Blacksmith: I’m starting to worry, Seeker. We didn’t find a Rudy in any of the families. Maybe he made up that name when he introduced himself to Amy. But why his he playing this game of cat and mouse? No, I don’t think any of the kids lied to us.
Helen: What a sad story! Poor Amy, I can only imagine how much energy and aspiration she’s put into this performance. I’m sure her friend didn’t do this on purpose. Let’s look for his name in the student registry!
To obtain the student registry, the Seeker must collect a certain number of objects. Those objects are dropped by creatures that the seeker must placate by giving them specific items.
Clicking on the blue arrow allows the player to complete the Mysterious Friend collection.
Helen: Alas, either the name isn’t real or Amy mixed it up, but, according to the registry, there are no boys Amy’s age named Rudy in Darkwood.
Congratulations! You completed the stage challenge and get Chocolate Present as a reward!
I have now filled in two of the six bubbles on the part of the Performer’s Path that shows a decorated box.
